Reactive Dogs Class (formerly "Dominant Dogs" class)

The Reactive Dogs class if for the dog that can't relax in the presence of other dogs or people in public, expressing itself in a confident, aggressive manner.

   
 

Goals:

The Reactive Dogs class is a behavior modification class designed for the dog who consistently over-reacts to the presence of other dogs and/or people in public with loud barking, lunging, and disruptive behavior.  Dominant Dogs class is also for the dog that has shown aggression toward humans in the form of growling, snapping, or biting, but not because of fear.  The class is aimed at re-establishing leadership for the handler using operant conditioning and humane techniques (not brute force or physical punishment).   It is also designed to empower the handler to re-gain control in a calm, effective manner.
